Hiking in Mt Elgon from Kenya 4 Days 3 Nights

Mount Elgon is an extinct shield volcano on the border of Uganda and Kenya,North of Kisumu and west of Kitale.
This is a four days team building or Adventure climbing activity. It starts at Eldoret or Kitale in Kenya and proceeds through Malaba and to Mbale in Uganda on to the Mt. Elgon and back to Kenya. The group is accompanied by a Guide and porters who have the duty of transporting some of the luggage for up to 18kg per person (the rest is extra luggage and it will be chargeable at extra cost). The food and menu for the hiking will be organized by Victoria safaris.

(Sasa trail is the fastest way to the main peak, however on the first day it is particularly tough with rugged climb of over 1600m).

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud

It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:

  • It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
  • If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
  • Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
